Sergio Santos’ slider was on point today. For a man who missed most of last season, he certainly hasn’t missed a beat.
Going into Spring Training, it appeared as though Casey Janssen had the leg up on Sergio Santos for the Blue Jays closer role.
As far as most were concerned, the job was Janssen’s to lose. Now the tables have turned and it’s essentially Santos’ job to win.

At times, Sergio Santos’ slider is unhittable. Alfonso Soriano had no chance here.
I’m not sure what Soriano was even thinking by swinging at this pitch. This is a screencap of where the ball was when he decided to start his swing - mere inches above the ground.
Sergio Santos blows yet another save against the Pirates. Which makes one long for Casey Janssen’s return.
